  • Maximum bit depth/sample rate increase to 24-bit/192 kHz
    Record ultra-high-resolution audio on your PC
  • Audio event effects
    Apply independent effects chains to individual audio events
  • Event grouping
    Grouped events move together across the timeline and stay in synch when slipped. Groups get saved with your ACID Projects and respond to undo/redo commands as well as copy/paste commands
  • Custom drum grid editor key maps
    Use the Drum Map Editor to create and edit drum maps. A drum map assigns a drum sound to a specific note. When a drum map is defined for a soft synth, you can use a drum grid in the timeline to edit MIDI data
  • MIDI input filtering
    These processes and filters perform mathematically perfect editing on MIDI events. Choose which notes and MIDI messages you want to record or exclude, modify key velocities, and quantize notes when performing on MIDI instruments
  • MIDI track freeze
    Projects that use soft synths can tax your computer's resources. Freezing MIDI tracks allows you to convert each MIDI track to a .wav file, effectively taking your soft synths offline
  • Publish to SoundCloud
    Upload tracks to the world's most popular new music listening destination directly within the ACID Music Studio interface
  • Multiport VSTi soft synth support
    Adds soft synth bus controls for available VSTi output ports to independently mute, solo, add effects, and adjust volume
